I went out yesterday for a normal 50 mile local loop and saw TONS of people out on the roads walking, running, and riding bicycles. Everyone is cooped up hiding in their houses the sun and temps in the mid 50's was too much to resist.

Ever notice all the people he names in that song all have the initials "L.B."?

I rode into work today. I'm on one of the bikes to work anyday its not really miserable out. I have put a good chunk of miles on this winter on the FJR, a lil less on the DR, but still had quite a few offroad and dual sport runs.
I'm Lucky, My work isnt effected by all this social distancing. I shut the door to my office and Carry on. Wife works from home. I feel for all the folks getting slammed through no fault of thier own in the name of precaution right now. Unfortunate but necessary.

Its good to get out and ride, even if it is just to work!

And talk about Panic, what the heck with everyone taking case after case of water? I mean its not like suddenly your well or city water is gonna quit working. Its not some natural disaster where the power supply is in danger from high winds or flooding.

work... I don't do that anymore, but I'm frequently in the company of commuters.
This last week, I can actually travel along Calif. Freeways at 70mph with NO lane splitting.
What a joy that is!

All of a sudden nobody's tap water is good enough. I'm still trying to find a gallon of distilled water for a coolant change.

Today I'm going for a ride to test my just installed ECU after getting Ivan's ECU flash. Will report on test ride. Something tells me I'm going to have to eat some crow.
I got my Ivan's ECU installed yesterday and it won't stop raining. Tomorrow is supposed to be nice, and I hope to get out.

You folks are right about the craziness. My wife came home from the grocery store yesterday and said that the manager told her that people are quitting their jobs there for fear of the virus. I guess they figure it's safer to sit home and draw unemployment.

Just keepin' up with traffic, Officer.

My wife drove back from FL to WI. I normally fly down to do the trip back with her but it didnít seem prudent as Iím missing some of my lungs. She noticed an interesting cultural difference. In addition to toilet paper and who knows what else the FL supermarket were sold out of bottled water but had tons of potatoes, the WI market had stacks of bottled water but were sold out of potatoes!

I wish people would both take this virus seriously and also not panic and behave irrationally. I have seen both extremes and neither is good.
